  • Creamy Apple Slaw:
  • ¼ cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • ½ cup coarsely shredded Granny Smith apple
  • ¼ cup shredded carrot
  • ¼ cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • Apple-Brat Burgers:
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • ¼ teaspoon ground sage
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 ounces lean ground pork
  • 4 ounces uncooked ground turkey breast
  • 2 light whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. To prepare Creamy Apple Slaw: In a small bowl, combine Greek yogurt and cider vinegar. Stir in apple, carrot, red cabbage, and raisins. Cover and chill 2 hours before serving.
  2. To prepare Apple-Brat Burgers: In a large bowl, combine egg white, bread crumbs, applesauce, onion, sage, pepper, and nutmeg. Add pork and turkey; mix well. Shape mixture into two ¾-inch-thick patties. Using your thumb, indent the middle of each patty.
  3. For a gas or charcoal grill, grill patties on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 14 to 18 minutes or until done (165°F), turning once halfway through grilling time (see Tip).
  4. To serve, place patties on bottom halves of buns. Top with the Creamy Apple Slaw and bun tops.
  • Tip: The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A turkey patty cooked to 165°F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.
